Follow Srila Prabhupada

Prabhupada is our founder acharya. So we are to be completely dedicated to preserving all the things that Srila Prabhupada gave us. And to expanding all of the desires and the instructions which he has given to us. We do not have the mandate to change things he has given us. We should preserve what he has given. Then as the preaching expands and we come into other levels of preaching, then there will be some areas which are in common will have to consider what to do. Like when the whole world is Krishna conscious, they have to consider on a Krishna Conscious government and things, so on and so forth. That falls under Prabhupada’s broad instructions to organize the world under varnashrama. But our principle is that we have to follow Srila Prabhupada. This is the attitude of the servant of the servant of the servant.
